DURBAN – The Sharks have named an unchanged starting lineup to face the Bulls in their Super Rugby clash in Durban on Saturday.

On the bench, loose forward Dan du Preez makes a return from injury.

Sharks coach Robert du Preez said he felt the need to make consistent selections.

“Over the past two weeks, we really started to click as unit on-field and we want to carry that momentum going into our next two matches, before the break,” said Du Preez. “This is going to be a typical local derby match and it’s important that we stick we to our plans and execute them accurately on the day.
